Andra had had a good day in town but had imbibed
rather too freely and the upshot was that he missed the last train home.
Going to the nearest Post Office office he asked
the counter girl to write a telegram to his wife saying, 'missed train.' The
assistant, sympathetic, and anxious to assist one in obvious trouble,
suggested that he could add a few more words without further cost,
explaining how he had missed it.
Steadying himself for a moment, Andrew replied "Nivver
mind, lassie, she'll ken!"
